In April 2005, two U.S. Secret Service agents visited The Glass Curtain Gallery’s exhibit, “Axis of Evil: The Secret History of Sin.” The agents photographed the art and pressed for information on the participating artists and curator in order to, “make sure it isn’t something more than a statement.” The exhibit was comprised of controversial political imagery on mock postage stamps, including an image of George W. Bush with a revolver to his head, a sequence depicting a plane crashing into the Sears Tower, references to abuse within the Catholic church, and other hot button topics.
